Purpose To study the effect of the 2013 updates to the 2007 American Society of Clinical Oncology/College of American Pathologists recommendations for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) testing in breast cancer on testing patterns and interpretation in a large regional reference laboratory. Patients and Methods Patient cases with HER2 testing scores for breast biomarker evaluation were selected from our laboratory information system during two 12-month periods (2012 and 2014). The number of tests performed, type of specimens, proportion of HER2-positive and equivocal patient cases, and number of repeat tests on subsequent excisional specimens were examined and compared...

The interinstrumental transfer of a short-end capillary electrophoretic method was studied. A model separation of the hexameric forms of Niobium, Tantalum and their substituted ions (Nb6-x Tax with 0≤x≤6) was selected as test case. The method was first optimised on a Beckman instrument and in a second step transferred to an Agilent instrument. The transfer needed updated guidelines that tackled differences in effective capillary length, 8.5 (Agilent) versus 10 cm (Beckman), because of instrumental different capillary cartridges...

INTRODUCTION: Many surgical techniques have been described for the treatment of TMJ ankylosis, but no strategy has been uniformly agreed upon underscoring the difficulty of the problem. Despite new guidelines and updated methods, treating patients with TMJ Ankylosis remains a challenge as the incidence of recurrence after treatment is soaring. This study exemplifies our experience in using an unsullied method to treat TMJ Ankylosis to restore the structure of TMJ in conjunction with convalescing secondary maxillofacial deformity...

By way of a case story, two common presuppositions in the academic debate on conscientious objection in healthcare are challenged. First, the debate typically presupposes a sharp division between conscience-based refusals based on personal core moral beliefs and refusals based on professional (eg, medical) reasons. Only the former might involve the moral gravity to warrant accommodation. The case story challenges this division, and it is argued that just as much might sometimes be at stake morally in refusals based on professional reasons...

BACKGROUND: Meningitis is the inflammation of the meninges of the brain and or spinal cord. Global mortality rates vary from 2% to 30%. Epidemic meningitis remains a public health concern along the meningitis belt of Africa. Despite the operation of an enhanced meningitis surveillance system in Ghana, institutional mortality rates are estimated to range from 36% to 50%. In 2014, Yendi recorded 83 confirmed cases; with focal epidemics in some sub-municipals. We evaluated the system over a five-year period to find out whether it was achieving its objectives of systematic collection and analyses of data for the prevention or early detection of meningitis epidemics...

When a novel influenza A virus with pandemic potential emerges, nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) often are the most readily available interventions to help slow transmission of the virus in communities, which is especially important before a pandemic vaccine becomes widely available. NPIs, also known as community mitigation measures, are actions that persons and communities can take to help slow the spread of respiratory virus infections, including seasonal and pandemic influenza viruses.These guidelines replace the 2007 Interim Pre-pandemic Planning Guidance: Community Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Mitigation in the United States - Early, Targeted, Layered Use of Nonpharmaceutical Interventions (https://stacks...
